Surgery Dana Barros 76ers Jersey , Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy, targeted therapy, Immunotherapy, Hyperthermia Clarence Weatherspoon 76ers Jersey , Stem cell transplant, photodynamic therapy, lasers and blood product donation. By now most your must have felt these terms familiar and correlated them to cancer treatment. Yes! These are the most common therapies for cancer treatment and especially for that of late-stage cancer. Are the cancer patients destined for a miserable death? Is there a way to prolong their survival without going through emotional and physical pain of current cancer treatment? Companies coming up with supplementary products and those of cancer survivors have something else to talk about – Nutraceuticals.
Illustration of the basic cancer treatment strategy that is currently employed
Internet has become a wealth of information and access to this vast data led many cancer patients to use complementary methods as an adjunct to traditional therapy for cancer. In fact, these therapies are seldom documented or are informed to the primary caregiver. The most common of all, the use of dietary supplements appears to be highly prevalent in patients in active treatment for cancer. A boost up to this trend are the findings of emerging research which states that some plant-based agents may Charles Barkley 76ers Jersey , indeed show, significant impact on late-stage cancer, influencing molecular processes corrupted by tumor cells to evade detection, expand clonally and invade surrounding tissues.
PROMISING ALTERNATIVE TO CANCER THERAPY!
The number of people who have successfully dealt with cancer in the US is increasing constantly. About 10.5 million people in US alone claimed that they are ‘cancer survivors’. The result of a primary survey conducted in over 13 countries showed that over 30% of the cancer patients employ some type of complementary and alternative medical practices. Scientists had agreed that a possibility exists for herbal based dietary supplements to antagonize the therapy. However, the basic research had illuminated the promise for certain natural compounds of phytochemical origin Carl Landry 76ers Jersey , to also have the potential to interfere with the late-stage cancer, and perhaps after the course of meta-static cancer.
INTERFERENCE WITH CANCER
This can be justified with the likely results in cell lines and in animal models. Some of the nutraceutical agents that have shown positive results during research include, Capsaicin, Eugenol, Gingerol Ben Simmons 76ers Jersey , Diosgenin and Proanthocyanadins. Eugenol (4-allyl-1hydrozy-2-methoxybenzene) is generally found in oil of cloves, basil, cinnamon and other aromatic spices. Tumor growth suppressive effects of Eugenol were noted in studies of human cancer cell lines and in the MNNG-rat model of gastric cancer. In later study, cell proliferation was inhibited via suppression of nuclear kappa beta (NFκβ), in keeping with many other nutraceuticals that appear to be both anti-inflammatory and growth inhibitory.
Eugenol and its applications
More recent studies by the same group in the rat gastric cancer model have amplified the anti-inflammatory effects of Eugenol by down-regulating the expression of MMPs Allen Iverson 76ers Jersey , VEGF, TIMP-2 and RECK, all associated with the invasion of tumor cells. Though this might be the just tip of an iceberg and our research community might just wave it away as a false promise to boost the nutraceutical sales, this idea of employing natural medicine in cancer therapy is a subject that gained immense popularity.
HOW IS THE MARKET?
In a nutshell, say it because of the use in cancer therapy or just for providing required supplementary nutrients for the body in their natural form Wilt Chamberlain Jersey , nutraceuticals gave gained prominence with many health aware consumers preferring them to synthetic supplements. This in turn had boosted the nutraceutical market, which is expected to reach $385 billion by 2020 with an annual growth rate of 7.5% as quoted by Mordor Intelligence in their recent market analysis report on the former.

With over 14 million new cancer cases being registered every year, the scope of employing nutraceuticals as dietary supplements during the treatment is highly optimistic, making the nutraceutical market a fruitful venture, for the coming 5-10 years.

At least 47 students were killed in a college in Nigeria's northeastern state of Yobe after gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members unleashed terror on Sunday morning Timothe Luwawu Jersey , local sources reported.
The College of Agriculture in Gujba, 50 km south of the state capital Damaturu, came under attack by gunmen who shot mindlessly at students, an official who craved for anonymity said.
"So far, we have recovered at least 47 bodies within and outside the school premises. Many of the people affected were men. It is sad that their lives were cut short by this incident Tiago Splitter Jersey ," Ali Mohammed, an auxiliary staff of the college told Xinhua on phone.
Mohammed said tears filled the eyes of many sympathizers who thronged the campus on Sunday afternoon and found bodies of the victims laid in an open space.
"Some government officials have paid condolence visit to the college. This is a sad incident," he said, giving a hint that a mass burial was being planned for the victims.
According to the college officer, many other students were injured in the attack. Most of the injured students have been taken to a state-run hospital in Damaturu for treatment.
More corpses may be recovered as rescuers were still combing the area on Sunday afternoon for other dead or injured victims Robert Covington Jersey , he added..
